Elephants might be tropical animals, but that does not mean that they enjoy the heat. In the wild, elephants find numerous ways to cool off from the sun; they spray themselves with water or go for a swim. When they have to cross great open plains, they literally bathe in mud, which acts as a sunscreen to their sensitive skin.

Elephants bred in captivity have the constant support of caretakers to provide them with all the comfort they possibly can. This baby elephant wanted to cool off, so the caretakers took to the hose to spray him down!

Seeing how it’s scorching hot right now, we really could use a hose down right about now! How we envy that little elephant…
